blogCaptain Larry and the Tampa Water Taxi

December 10, 2013


Meet Captain Larry. He runs the Tampa Water Taxi. He likes good coffee, knows all about Elvis, and random facts about Tampa.

Tonight, I took my very first water taxi ride in Tampa. Slightly embarrassing since I’ve lived here all my life, but it had been on my Tampa to-do list for a while. The event was probably delayed so long because I’ve never had the best of luck on boats, usually falling ill within the first few minutes on the water. I totally lucked out with Captain Larry. First off, I felt zero sea-sickness. I didn’t even feel like I was on the water…smoothest ride ever! Second, he provided some super interesting tidbits of Tampa history. (I’m such a sucker for anything relating to my city.) Third, we discussed good, strong espresso. He even offered to bring some on our next trip with him. Ummm, heaven! Lastly, I saw my city from a completely different view that night and it couldn’t have been more beautiful. All around, a spectacular trip.
